The project will add frontage road lanes and a bridge over the railroad crossing at Chisholm Trail Road as well as a new roundabout below the bridge. To help maintain access to businesses and residential spaces in the area, crews will build access roads between Lake Creek Drive and Chisholm Trail. The project includes a second bridge that will be constructed to carry RM 620 trac and 3 of the Kenney Fort Boulevard project to add a three-lane north- south arterial road that will provide an additional route through eastern Round Rock. Crews are grading the site for the new road and completing underground water utility work.
